This book will take you on a military tour around the world through more than 45 countries in nine regions. You will accompany more than 60 men and women who tell their stories of being involved in the military, whether at home in Canada or abroad in foreign lands. For example, several were involved with the actual events on which the following movies were based: The Bridge over the River Kwai; A Bridge Too Far; Canada and the Liberation of the Netherlands, May 1945; The Devil's Brigade; To End All Wars; The Great Impostor; My Lai; Sink the Bismarck; and The Valour and the Horror. You will read about why they entered, what they experienced, what they accomplished, and what advice they would give to those considering enlisting in the military. This book will make you more familiar with the men and women who have served Canada in uniform during our first full century of nationhood. The dominant emotion is a quiet pride in lives spent in the service of others. Get to know some of the faces who serve or served in the armed forces.
